The Walking Dead confirms filming will resume this month as season 11 kicks off in Atlanta

THE Walking Dead is set to restart production on the upcoming season 11 in just a few weeks.

The AMC zombie drama was forced to postpone filming and even editing back in the spring as the coronavirus pandemic swept the globe and shut down sets industry-wide.

However, according to network CEO Josh Sapan The Walking Dead, along with spin-off show Fear The Walking Dead, are both about to get back to the grind.

During an AMC investor call he confirmed that The Walking Dead would resume filming in Atlanta, Georgia, later this month.

Meanwhile Fear the Walking Dead will restart production in Austin, Texas, two months later in October.

Sapan stressed that every precaution would be taken to ensure the health and wellbeing of cast and crew.

"Our ability to resume in the safest possible way is something we are closely focused on," he said.

"We will continue to monitor and adjust accordingly depending on local circumstances."

The season 10 finale, along with a string of behind-the-scenes bonus episodes, will air this autumn, bridging the long wait until 2021 when season 11 will drop.
